This quite literally is about to become your favorite side dish of all time. To be perfectly honest, I have almost eaten whole batches in one sitting. It's healthy and addicting, so watch out. Thanksgiving week seemed like the perfect time to introduce this little mixture of perfection because its sweet and tangy flavors will appeal to everyone at the dinner table. Plus, it takes about 10 minutes to make a double batch, which makes it an ideal potluck addition. Have I sold you yet?

Be prepared to be the talk of the potluck if you bring this salad. (Except for maybe pumpkin pie guy, because, well... it's pumpkin pie. Don't be too mad. I've got a pumpkin pie recipe coming later this week that will make store bought pie seem like child's play.)
This recipe has become the gem that it is through a lot of experimentation and tweaking by my dearest mother. I'd like to say it was mostly a collaborative effort, but my big additions were the turmeric and bell pepper, so don't you dare leave those out. lol ;) On that note, a huge thanks to my mom who has been as instrumental in this blog/cookbook as the food itself. She's encouraged me every single day, clipped magazines for inspiration, sent encouraging emails to warm up my creative brain, and never let me quit! Behind every great recipe, there's a mom who wasn't afraid to try it and fake a pleased face, even when you're 6 years old and make a giant batch of shutter-inducing baking soda pancakes. THANKS MOM!
